The UNH Responsible Conduct of Research and Scholarly Activity Committee (RCR) announces the availability of training in the ethical and responsible conduct of research.
This training opportunity involves two components:
- Completion of UNH’s web-based RCR instructional modules, available athttp://www.unh.edu/research/rcr-instruction-unh#Web
- Participation in a seminar on Friday, Oct. 5, from 1–4 p.m. in MUB 330/332
Modules must have been completed prior to participation in the seminar. Successful completion of the training requires completion of both components.
Registration for the seminar is required; Individuals must register for the training by Thursday, Sept. 27. Registration information is available at http://www.unh.edu/research/rcr-training-unh.
Incoming doctoral students who are required to complete RCR training should not register for this training but instead register for the Sept. 28 RCR training session reserved for them. Please contact Julie Simpson with any questions.
The training will fulfill:
- The National Science Foundation (NSF) mandate that all postdoctoral researchers, and undergraduate and graduate students supported by NSF to conduct research on proposals submitted on or after Jan. 4, 2010, receive appropriate training in the ethical and responsible conduct of research. (See http://www.unh.edu/research/nsf-rcr-training-requirement.)
- The United States Department of Agriculture (USDA) National Institute of Food and Agriculture (NIFA) RCR requirement. (See http://www.unh.edu/research/usda-nifa-rcr-training-requirement.)
This training is open to any member of the UNH community. While it is primarily directed at postdoctoral researchers, graduate students and undergraduate students, faculty and staff are invited to participate.
